Exertis Almo Spring 2024 E4 Experience Comes to D.C. Metro and Chicago with New Sessions, Immersive Demos and 40+ Exhibitors - February 23, 2024

Philadelphia, PA — February 22, 2024 — With only a couple of weeks to go until the 2024 E4 Experience commences, Exertis Almo, the largest and most specialized value-added North American AV distributor is putting the finishing touches on the spring installments with an entirely new lineup of 10 business and technical AVIXA-certified sessions, three immersive demos focused on AI, XR headsets and drones, and 40+ exhibitors previewing the newest AV products and services. The 2024 E4 Experience journey will begin in the D.C. Metro area on March 5 and continue to Chicago on April 16.

Well-established in the AV industry as the most valuable, free, one day traveling education, training and product showcase for integrators, consultants and their end users, in the last year alone the E4 Experience received a 2023 SCN Stellar Service Award and 2023 Commercial Integrator BEST and Quest For Quality awards.

“The beauty of the E4 Experience is that it comes directly to local-area integrators so they don’t have to travel and take extended time away from their projects,” explained Melody Craigmyle, vice president of marketing and communications, Almo Corporation. “Instead, they can bring clients to a beautiful showroom filled with new, interactive technology and engage with sales engineers to ask questions and take the next step. Integrators tell us that the E4 Experience has been the direct result of new business relationships and new ideas for growth and profitability. They leave charged up and ready to jump back in with a fresh perspective.”

Craigmyle added, “If attendees are looking to earn AVIXA CTS renewal units to maintain their status or if they just want to learn about the latest industry trends and technology, they can partake in a full day of sessions that become more technical from morning to afternoon.” She continued, “Immersive demos, including a Microsoft Teams Room Experience Center, XR Solutions with the newest PICO headsets, and even a live drone simulation, will also be available – along with a few additional surprises.”
